(Newser) – Behaving more and more like John MCain's still-unnamed running mate, Mitt Romney yesterday tore into Joe Biden, reports the Washington Post. “His record being wrong on foreign policy is as long as his years in foreign policy,” zinged Romney. When asked if he was ready to debate Biden, Romney called the senator an "impenetrable thicket of words. I don't know if anyone is ready to debate him."

While Romney had harsh words for McCain during the primaries—he called him “outside the mainstream of Republican thought”—today he touted his former opponent as a “true-blooded American hero.” McCain may announce his running mate as early as Friday.
